We had the California quesadilla and the spicy chicken burrito, the quesadillas we loved and the burrito was alright. It wasn't very busy but the food was delivered very fast, and the staff was friendly and fast in servicing. Would recommend going here!

My wife went to Gritty's after a day of shopping, exercise, and chores. On looking over the menu I found the food to be on the pricey side for a hole in the wall bar. My wife ordered the Mexicali Burger and I ordered the...More

If you judge this place by their beer, it's terrific. But if you judge by the food, it's pretty good. Not bad, by any means, but just pretty good. We have been a few times. Our son is a real fan. My real complaint comes...More

We were there on a Friday night and it had a good scene. The pizza was a great late night treat, but the drinking probably made it taste that much better. We went back on Saturday night around 11 and it was dead. They also...More

Gritty McDuff's, Maine's Original Brew Pub specializes in hand-crafted English style ales and traditional and creative pub fare, in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Both Gritty's fine ales and the pubs have won countless "best of" awards through our twenty-five years of operation. Our standard brews are session beers, Gritty's Pub-Style Pale Ale, McDuff's Best Bitter, Black Fly Stout, allowing one to have multiple beers within a reasonable time period without overwhelming the senses. Our seasonal and varietal ale offerings are more adventurous, some with a higher ABV, and some with higher IBU. We brew a beer for all craft brew palates. For the diner, we offer traditional pub fare alongside not so traditional specialty items. Our pub-style long tables with benches easily accommodate parties of all sizes and add to the camaraderie.
